Travel

How will my child get to and from the Academy?

We want all students to arrive at the Academy safely and on time. Please read through this information and then discuss and agree the travel arrangements with your child.

Walking to the Academy

Any students walking to the Academy should use public footpaths and wherever possible should walk to the Academy with a friend. Good standards of behaviour and respect for all our neighbours’ property and privacy are expected at all times; students should be aware that whilst they are wearing the Academy uniform they are representing the Academy.

Cycling to the Academy

As an Academy we would like to encourage as many students as possible to cycle. Tudor Grange has an area where bikes can be locked to rails.   Your child would be expected to lock their bicycle using a suitable cable and we will provide a cloakroom service for the storage of helmets. We would prefer your child to wear a cycle helmet. Although we cannot insist upon this we would encourage you to tell your child to wear one.

Car

In order to ensure the safety of all our students, parents who bring their children to the Academy by car should not bring their vehicles onto the Academy site

Law and guidance for dropping students off at the academy

LAWS ZPPPCRGD REGS 18, 20 & 24, RTRA SECT 25(5) & TSRGD REGS 10, 27 & 28

5. Pedestrian crossings (191 to 199)

191

You must not park on a crossing or in the area covered by the zig-zag lines. You must not overtake the moving vehicle nearest the crossing or the vehicle nearest the crossing which has stopped to give way to pedestrians. Further to local concerns raised regarding cars persistently parking to drop off students on zig zag areas, I am pleased to announce that local police are now conducting patrols in the area. Can I please request that all parents refrain from dropping students off in the busy pedestrian zone immediately outside the entrance and stopping next to the bollards on Drovers Way where students also cross the road.
